Hedy. 1967. USA. Directed by Andy Warhol. Written by Ronald Tavel. With Mario Montez, Mary Woronov, Gerard Malanga, Jack Smith, Ingrid Superstar, Tavel. 66 min.
Performer John Epperson (aka Lypsinka) introduces a new digital transfer of Andy Warhol’s noir satire Hedy, inspired by ex-Hollywood star Hedy Lamarr’s arrest and trial for shoplifting only months before. Minimally-staged in Warhol’s famed East 47th Street studio The Factory, with a dissonant live score by John Cale and Lou Reed (The Velvet Underground), it is fueled by the slow-burning charisma of legendary drag superstar Mario Montez as “the most beautiful woman in the world,” and supported by a cast of Warhol regulars under the detached eye of the director’s camera.
